First we sang songs like "The Dog Song" (in the chorus you "bark bark bark Hallelujah") and "My God is a Big Ol' God" (EJ is helping with the motions for "I've got peace like a river" here--we also sang "I have decided to follow Jesus" and an Old West verse of "I may never march in the infantry"):
It was just amazing how much fun EJ had--no boys vs. girls competitions, no penny wars, no real games except the review game--and you had to answer a question correctly to play! All the kids stayed in one place for an hour and fifteen minutes, and none of them seemed to mind. It was a refreshing change from seeing all the other churches around town who boast to be the biggest and the best with the most entertainment to be found. This just proves that kids don't actually need all that stuff to be drawn to church and want to come back.
